During the first half of the 6th century, the end of the lotus petal on the tile was made significantly smaller through Goguryeo’s influence, or a round-petal design was used instead as commonly found in Baekje. After the mid-6th century, however, a distinctive lotus design appeared as Silla’s indigenous style. This design survived until the mid-7th century, and is characterized by single-layered petals with a ridgeline on the center and a great visual sense of volume.
